Mountain by Nimphradora Mountain by Nimphradora
Photo study. Took me around 15h to finish. It was so fun and interesting and I think I learned a lot while painting this. Can't wait to do more.

This is the ref I used. My painting ended up mirrored, but I hope you can still compare it. :) i.pinimg.com/originals/15/8b/b…

I'm very eager to improve so all C&C are very welcome :)

This is beautiful! To be 100% honest with you I thought it was a photo that you had taken but now I see (and after reading the description) that this is a painting that you did! I know that 15 hours is a lot of time but this looks amazing! I love how you used the different color and how you were able to get them just right! It looks like it should have taken more then just 15 hours but for 15 hours even strait is amazing! I also want to say thank you for adding a discretion so viewers know what they are looking at!

Nicely done!

Overall this is really good, I love how you did the cloud shadows and the general use of colour and lighting!

One thing I'd like to critique is the texture of the grass, especially on the nearest slopes. The shape of the surface makes it look like it should be short grass (which also fits the setting), but these long strokes you painted it with don't really get that texture across - they either read as long stalks, or even resemble the rock texture of the peaks further in the background.
Further in the background where the grassy areas intermingle with the rock, these curved lines almost make it appear like a liquid flowing down over the rocks. Unless that's what you were going for, maybe try shorter, straight strokes?

I love how you managed to convey depth with the perspective, the way the rocky peaks are outlined against the sky and blurred in places by the clouds. It looks like a lovely place!

Well, shoot, this just makes me want to play "Breath of the Wild again". It gives off this feeling of peace, but adventure all at once. Like wanting to breathe in the grassy wind and enjoy the stroll, but also itching to find out what's on the other side of those mountains. Beautiful!
